Patrick Clarke farmed in Rama Township near Lake St. John. When the land was sold to Grant Johnson in 1891, Patrick moved to Washago to run the Ontario House Hotel. In 1903 the family moved to Utterson.
Patrick married Marie Newman on April 21, 1879. For several years they conducted a hotel in Washago, before moving to Utterson in 1903 to take over another hotel which he ran until his death. Their house in Utterson was a great farmer's gathering place when marketing their produce, and was the popular stopping place of travellers in general. Patrick was badly hurt in a automoblile accident in June of 1921, which ultimately resulted in his death in December of 1925.

Barn Raising at Longford
How It Is Done
Another of our enterprising
neighbors has raised a magnificent
barn. Mr. P. Clark, after engaging
all the best mechanical skill in the
township, has put up a building
40x66 with 20 foot side posts. It
is laid out within, in an entirely
original style; is built on a stone wall
ten feet in height and is amply
provided with doors, windows, etc.
It will be, when completed, on of the
most convenient barns in this
Mr. Clark is not only a scientific
farmer, but a prosperous butcher,
and does a buisness in the latter
line, which many of your town
butchers might well envy.
